Brigham Young University If we’ve learned anything from post-apocalyptic movies it’s that computers eventually become self-aware and try to eliminate humans. BYU engineer Dah-Jye Lee isn’t interested in that development, but he has managed to eliminate the need for humans in the field of object recognition. Lee has created an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration. “In most cases, people are in charge of deciding...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers in Malaysia are teaching a computer to interpret human emotions based on lip patterns in order to improve the way people interact with computers. The research, which is published in the International Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing, could also allow disabled people to better use computer-based communications devices, such as voice synthesizers, more effectively. "In recent years, there has been...

The utility of sex, according to an intriguing new theory of evolutionary biology, may be its ability to promote genes that play well with many other partners rather than those that shine with just one specific set of genes. This idea of genetic mixability, described in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the week of Nov. 24, hits on the difficulty evolutionary biologists have had in understanding sex, specifically its role in population genetics and Darwin's...
